Our ongoing effort to students to make 3D parts and assemble prosthetic hands, under the certification of the engineering charity e-NABLE and arrange for them to be distributed free to those in need anywhere in the world. Helping Hands MB is a local chapter of e-NABLE.
David Tamen, our VP of Engineering, is certified by e-NABLE to make the Unlimbited Phoenix Hand. This is a three-part prosthesis that can provide mobility and allow two-handed tasks for a child missing a limb up to an elbow stump.
Helping Hands MB aims to provide these children with hope and kindness. A brightly colored prosthetic to mimic that of a superhero can help a child adjust to the idea of using a prosthetic to help them lead a meaningful life, and most importantly know that they are loved.
Our partnership is with Food For The Poor, a charity funded by kindhearted donors, that provides food and medical supplies to poverty-stricken areas in Haiti, Jamaica, and throughout Central America. Helping Hands MB prosthetics will be fitted to children at the Prosthetic Clinic at Bernard Mevs Hospital in Port-au-Prince, Haiti.
